At the beginning of one class give each student a pen and a piece of paper. Have them write down five topics that they would like to have your youth ministry cover in the next few weeks. If your youth ministry has just 10 members and each of your students wrote down five topics, all of a sudden you now have 50 different topics to get you started.
The Bible study topics that you come up with and share with your youth ministry should also be timely. So if there is something happening in the world that is making big news, use that as a topic to connect with Scripture to share with your students. By making sure that your Bible study topics are timely you instantly create a connection with the material that you are teaching to the world that we are living in.
Your Bible study topics should also allow for open debate within your youth ministry. There was nothing wrong with being a little controversial with a topic that you deliver. I’ve been a little controversial, you can almost guarantee that you will have a great open discussion with your youth group at the end of the lesson.
Bible study topics should always be interesting and should always be taught with the enthusiasm that you have for our Lord Jesus Christ. If your passion and your love for God shines through in the material that you are teaching to your students, even if the topic is a little boring or mundane, you can capture your students attention and imagination with your presentation.
No matter what Bible study topics you choose to share with your youth ministry keep in mind that the most important part of any lesson is that it is founded strongly on Scripture and the teachings of Jesus Christ. Have fun with the Bible study topics that you choose to share with your students and do your best to lead them to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
